because the sequester, payroll tax cut that went away, all that stuff, melissa is factoring i think what is happening in these companies to where mark's point, yeah they have all run up and now we're starting to say the cows are coming home and we don't have true earnings growth, the top-line growth that we need. melissa: lance, that is absolutely right. that is the theme we hear again and again, they can't grow the top line because the economy isn't supporting that. what do you do? how do you respond to that? how do you protect your money? >> well the thing is you have to understand, actually mark hit on a great point, since 2009 revenues only grown by about 7% of the earnings have grown by almost 230%. the disparity's come from things like stock buybacks, accounting gimmickry in terms when do we account for stuff and when we don't. and so what drives corporate growth in the stock markets over the long term is that top line revenue, sales. that's what we node to see. that is what --. melissa: lance, i know that, tell me how do i protect my wealth in light of that? i hear what you're say
